fearless fashion

{F21 varsity jacket, Target tee, J.Crew jeans, Crocs boat shoes c/o, BCBG necklace, Zara handbag, Ray-Bans}

When Croc's first came out, I was appalled. Those hideous clog-like, rubber shower shoes best reserved for traveling tourists and children under ten- definitely got under my skin. How could anyone choose to wear them, I thought (don't hate me, you know you thought the same!). Well, when Cosmopolitan mag and Palladium sent me a pair of shoes to style for their "Fearless Fashion" campaign you could imagine my surprise when all I knew about the pair was that they were Crocs!

Fearless fashion, indeed. I was pleasantly surprised when I saw the cute boat shoes arrive at my doorstep, and instantly thought of a few ways to style them. I knew I wanted to wear them with a striped top- a play on their nautical vibe, if you will- and possibly a navy blazer with a red lip. What I ended up with was what I like to call "casual glamour"- a blinged out collar necklace complimented this low key sporty look. While these Croc boat shoes won't be replacing my Jean-Michel Cazabat's anytime soon- they will absolutely be joining me on morning coffee runs, and days out on the water.

  2. Love the color of Crocs you received! How fun to see two different looks with two different colors of the same shoe! Nice job!

  5. I can't believe Crocs makes these either. I'm stunned! Even if I wanted to wear their other versions they're always to wide for me. You pair these PERFECTLY though. I've love the sparkly after school tomboy look. I've been debating the varsity jacket buy myself. I may have been swayed...

  6. Holy Crocs. I dont believe my eyes. Super cute look girl. The jacket gives me nostalgia. I had a mickey mouse one when I was younger from the Disney store. I would totally rock it today if I could.

  9. Awww I had the same exact thoughts about this type of shoe... but when they started adding sparkly colors, I couldn't resist and bought a pair. Also, that F21 jacket is awesome.

  11. Haha holy Crocs indeed!
    I have to admit I was wondering where this post was going but breathed a sigh of relief when you said the Crocs were the ones on your feet, and not the rubber version you were going to do a later post on.... PHEWF!!
    So anyway, I'm totally digging a boat shoe at the moment and these are actually - dare I say it - looking good! :-)

  22. Simply awesome from top to bottom, the necklace is looking beautiful with the jacket, must be very comfortable with this type of jeans.
